for the latest in what has been a series of race and momentum defining state primari primaries. can mitt romney's money and the advantage he has with the money help him to defend his front-runner status. can rick santorum's message land him another upset? mitt romney's campaign and super pac poured a whopping $3.3 million into illinois to fill the state's airwaves with ads. rick santorum showed up comparatively less armed to the illinois add wars meeting romney's millions with $446,000. between his campaign and the super pac that supports him, he has not nearly as much money as mitt romney has got. but add to santorum's financial capital the capital that he gains from the momentum that he earned with his wins across the south. delivered by voters who are responding to santorum's true conservative message. now, the rebounding economy hasn't allowed romney much traction with his position that's the economic heavyweight. so he's fallen back on a platform that's solid but considerably less sexy. >> inches us closer to that magic number. >> oh, that magic number. thank you, mitt romney. for that han
cliff. last night in washington state, mitt romney won the caucus. but not a single delegate. but it was a nonbinding contest. the actual delegates won't be awarded until the state's convention in early june. remember superdelegates? i know, you're probably groaning. remember when you had no idea what it was. those were good times. as wild a ride as superdelegates made the democratic primary in 2008, have you looked at this year'sroom primary how it works. i mean really looked at it. keep in mind these two words. proportional representation. that's what the republicans increased in this primary. meaning, there are fewer winner takes all states. which is why it is so much harder for any candidate to clinch the nomination. the magic number is 1144. that is the number of delegates any candidate needs to secure the republican nomination. remember, 1144. that is the exact number of jelly beans in this jar. i counted. seriously, i counted. let's call this jar mitt romney's jar. here are the delegates or rather the jelly beans that he's gotten so far. escape delegate. 129. now, bust
back into play, and, two, debate the biggest football that mitt romney or whoever the republican nominee has to toss around in the general election. if passing health care legislation was the worst thing president oweobama ever did and is no longer the case, mitt romney has nothing to argue. joining me to breck break this down, are a constitutional law professor and rutgerses associate professor and reason magazine sed for. gentlemen, let's get to it. kenji, this is my best hope for an obama administration loss on the affordable health care act as a constitutional issue, relative to the individual mandate. if the individual mandate becomes unconstitutional, does that mean any attempt to do health care reform in the future can't include it, and, therefore, must include a public option? >> not necessarily. so the individual mandate is being framed as an acumen under the commerce law. they say this is not a tax, this is a penalty. so congress could refurbish this as a tax and say we're not doing this under our commerce power, we're doing this under a general taxation power. plaintif
't pivot too sharply. this tuesday mitt romney has to win. if he is going to retain the last shred of inevitability he has lests. for romney, ohio is the superest of all super tuesday states. and ohio is pretty much up for grabs with only four points separating romney and rick santorum in the quinnipiac poll released on friday. so if you were a candidate like romney, what do you do with a problem like ohio? do you talk about the economy and try to argue that the recovery isn't really much of a recovery, that, yeah, things are better but not as good as they should be? or maybe you try to revive a culture war, one that just might have worked eight years ago. remember in 2004 had when ballot initiatives to boon same-sex marriage in states including ohio were supposed to drive up conservative turnout. the former manager of george w. bush's former election campaign is now reflecting on the wedge issue. and this is what he told salon.com on friday. quote, at a personal level, i wish i had spoken out against the effort. as i have been involved in the fight for marriage equality, one of th
, mitt romney with endorsements like these, does he even need opponents? i'm going the try to help white folks feeling less nervous about, you know, race. but we will begin with this question, how perfect does a victim need to be. >>> good morning. i'm melissa harris-perry. now, before we get to our top story, i want to make note of something that will become very obvious shortly. all of our guests this morning are women. march is of course women's history month, and as today is the last day of march, we decided that we and you deserved to hear women's voices talking about the stories of the day. as consumers and producers of television news we don't always realize how underrepresented women are on the tv boxes, so today, we want you to take notice of women at our table, because nerdland is a girls allowed zone. okay. let's start with the news in the trayvon martin case. right now protesters are gathering in sanford, florida, for a march to the police headquarters there demanding that george zimmerman who killed trayvon martin arrested. we will bring you more this morning as it happens.

. i'm melissa harris-perry. newt gingrich may have called him the tortoise, but it's mitt romney who continues to make the slow and steady march to win delegates. yet looking ahead to puerto rico and illinois primaries this week, the plotting pace of his forward march might be why it seems that his rivals are the only ones actually moving. because rick santorum has the momentum of conservative voter wind at his back and newt gingrich has energy, as we heard from both candidates this week. >> we clearly were changing the national dialogue all week. if you'll notice, the president has now made three speeches and a press conference on energy. >> this is a grass roots campaign for president. who would have ever thought, in the age of media that we have in this country today, that ordinary folks from across this country can defy the odds day in, day out. >> now, wait. before you dismiss what you just heard as the latest batch of sound bites from guys who according to the recent polls are facing a long road to ever make it to the white house, consider this -- one day those words may reverb
opponent. santorum performs well with the evangelicals, but romney has enjoyed a generous lead with the republican catholics. through illinois, romney has had a 15-point lead with catholics over santorum, and in the last primary contest, ron paul beat santorum among catholics, so is there a catholic bump to be had in louisiana for the front runner? we will see tonight. join meg to talk cajun politics is buddy roamer who is now an americans elect and reform party candidate who is in san francisco today. and here at the table is matthew taylor who is a professor of political science and louisiana native. i want to start with you, buddy, because in part the election is in our home state to i daday an want to ask you how you see the louisiana primary playing out? >> i was in louisiana, melissa, for a couple of days this past week. i gave a speech in new orleans. i gave a speech in houma, h-o-u-m-a, down in the south. a lot of catholics. i'm a methodist boy myself, but the mood is two things. there is not a lot of fervor or spirit in the election in louisiana. i don't know why that
. they are not commander in chief. >> what would you like to say to mr. romney? >> good luck tonight. >> it is an interesting moment, there's a reflection of the 2008 moment when sarah palin said, oh, community organizers, they are not people with real responsibilities. it is like being a mayor with no responsibles. responsibilities. but that notion of, i'm the president, at any point i can hijack half of melissa perry show to have a conversation with the press, i kept thinking that it is interesting that the president with all the first-face of power he has never felt the need to come in to reset the agenda as well. >> i think what's interesting about the agenda setting happening in the republican primary is that it is starting to backfire on them. so if you look at what's happened among women, democrats had roughly a four-point lead going into the summer, last summer. now they have extended that to a 15-point lead over republicans in terms of elections of congress. so this agenda setting to focus on social issues and contraception and the focus on reproductive rights has backfired.
